Sparta Rotterdam and FC Twente will be hoping to take a good step towards European qualification when they face off this week.
The regular Eredivisie season is over but there is still action to come in the European play-offs. For those who don’t know, teams finishing from fifth to eighth in the Eredivisie enter the European play-offs with a chance to secure the Netherlands’ final European spot, which will take them into the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League.
We’ve already had the semi-finals, with Twente knocking out Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam needing penalties to beat eventually Utrecht despite holding a 2-0 lead in the tie. The European competition play-off final is split across two legs, with the return fixture taking place at the weekend.

Sparta Rotterdam team news
Mike Eerdhuijzen and Tobias Lauritsen both had to come off in the second leg of Sparta Rotterdam’s play-off semi-final against Utrecht with injury issues and they are now doubts for the first leg, though haven’t been completely ruled out. It may be a case of them missing this first leg in order to make the second, with Adil Auassar sure to step in at centre-back to replace Eerdhuijzen. Lauritsen’s is a lot harder to call, with the Norwegian starting all but one of Sparta’s 38 games across all competitions this season and barely coming off. Aside from two inexperienced options, Koki Saito could move central if Lauritsen isn’t back in time.
FC Twente team news
Max Bruns remains out for FC Twente having missed the last eight matches due to an ankle injury, though it wasn’t an absence that caused too much change to the starting XI. Twente came through their semi-finals against Heerenveen unscathed and may go unchanged from the XI that won the second leg 4-0.
